    There's a new tweak called OkSiri that just came out in the BigBoss repo (and is free). You set it up using Activator. They recommend you use the AC power connect/disconnect.

    It works even when the device's screen is off.

    Pretty cool. I have my keyword setup as just "Siri", and I can be typing on my MacBook Pro, say SIRI, wait for it to pop up a second and then SET MY ALARM FOR 6AM! :D

    Sounds a lot like Hands-Free Control, except that OKSiri is iOS7 and free.

    How are you setting it up? If you're doing it the power way, you only set one. either connected, or disconnected. Otherwise if you do both, it will deactivate.

    It won't activate until you either unplug or plug in the phone for the first time.

    It's weird, yeah.

    And you don't set an action to the phrase. (But it's still listed in Activator)

    You'll know it's on because you'll see a microphone icon by your battery percentage.

    You have to set it up in Activator first. Did you do that? It specifically notes that in the Cydia info page.

    Yes, I went into activator setting, clicked anywhere, scrolled down to oksiri and clicked on it, and then chose oksiri.

    You have to setup WHAT activates it. ;)

    Like triple press of the home key, etc.

    Do you have any other Activator settings set to charge/uncharge? Because most of the time a safe mode crash at an activator entry is caused by different actions using the same command in activator. If that's the case delete the others or assign another action to them. An example of a tweak that could conflict is the one that gives you info about your battery status as soon as you plug in/unplug.

    Thanks for the heads up on this, i have it working.

    I found that i had to set it up backwards from what made sense to me, the way I read the setting in Activator the way i have it set up should be turning OKSiri on when i plug it in.

    But when i set it up the other way OkSiri turned on when i plugged it in so I just reversed that way i had it and now it works. OKSiri turns on when I unplug the power.

    This also was where I made a mistake, I set an action under the OKSiri section on Activator. I removed this action and all is good.
